The only thing more terrifying than Snakes on a Plane is "Snakes on a Submarine," and that's exactly what we get in this claustrophobic, sub-aquatic thriller starring Luke Perry. Lieutenant Commander O'Neill (Perry) was piloting a retired submarine to its final port when Admiral Wallace (Tom Berenger) diverted the crew for one last mission: rescue an imperiled army research team before they meet a watery death. In order to reach the researchers and their top secret cargo while avoiding detection by a hostile enemy fleet, Lieutenant Commander O'Neill orders his crew to "run silent" in the depths. That silence is soon broken, however, when the cargo proves to be two genetically altered leviathans. Now, far beneath the ocean floor, a new kind of predator emerges to prove just how vulnerable man truly is when there's nowhere left to run.
Deep in the jungle of a remote island in the Pacific lives a new breed of mutant snake. Lt. Cmdr. James O'Neill is hired to rescue government scientist Dr. Andrea Swanson there. Together, they must confront the beast of the jungle! . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

Perhaps it was the fact it was filmed in my home county of Lancashire! Anyway, I certainly enjoyed it a lot more than I expected - it was a refreshingly different look at the second world war and was quite moving in places. I liked the fact the end of the story was left fairly open - the film finishes when the soldiers are being moved out for the D-Day landings. This means there is still a note of hope, even though we know that the chances of survival are slim.

Harvey Keitel breaks out as a leading man, carrying every scene as Jimmy, an immature, anxious twentysomething who's torn between dreams of becoming a classical pianist and his brutal work as a collector for his bookie father (Michael V. Gazzo, with his impossibly ravaged voice). He pursues a sensuous sculptress (Tisa Farrow, sister of Mia) and has rough sex with future Charlie's Angel Tanya Roberts (sporting the best bikini body you ever saw), but also struggles with homosexual temptations. Meanwhile, football legend Jim Brown (portraying Farrow's muscle-shirted boyfriend) schools him about how real men behave. Nothing quite falls into place for Jimmy, but he's pinning his hopes on an upcoming audition at Carnegie Hall.Writer/director James Toback's script is rather erratic, and full of casual plot elements that don't go anywhere (Jimmy's confused sexuality, for one, and how about the traffic accident and the prostate problem?). But the most questionable ingredient is -- surprisingly -- Keitel's performance. He gives Jimmy a ridiculous number of tics and twitches and, strangest of all, decides to compulsively mouth all the notes as he fakes piano virtuosity. Anyone familiar with Glenn Gould or Keith Jarrett can guess how hard this is to watch. Expect some unintentioned laughs before the story inevitably turns violent.

I watched this in theaters and honestly I didn't enjoy Spectacular Now as much as I thought I would which surprised me because I'm an avid fan and often sap for coming of age films and it did so well critically. I did not hate it either it was a semi heart warming spectacle but really its shortcomings for me are that I never connected to the main actor Miles Tellers Character. Who don't get me wrong brought a profound performance with him and I bitterly enjoyed that he was popular instead of a nerd or outcast like a usual staple of movies in this genre but to me he's still came off more of a Self-important alcoholic fool than a flawed teen with a heart of gold as the movie hopelessly wanted me to feel. Still the alcoholism was a good touch because it made him more defective as a person and sort of humanized him for me but it wasn't enough to redeem him in fact it maddened me when he refused his job back from Bob Odenkirk's wonderful yet underutilized character. What saved the movie undeniably for me is the powerfully authentic Shailene Woodley who brought a lot of compassion and genial charm with her character and not to mention she brings a natural sweetness and girl next door feel to everything that you can not help but fall in love with her which i guess is the only way I relate to the protagonist (and his alcoholism ;D). Brie Larson also deserves honorable mention as always being delightfully complicated and shrewd as Miles's on and off again girlfriend. All in all Spectacular Now is a worthy entry to the genre but not particularly engrossing and endearing as I hoped, save for a few scenes.
